Hey people! Today we went to a picnic for ISCJ, it was really great. There is such a great sense of community and they had fun activities for the kids like arts & crafts and bubbles. Have a look at some of the highlights.

Safiyah, enjoying her first park in the US

They have a petting zoo, the deer were so cute.

This peacock was showing off his beautiful feathers.

Zayneb at the picnic tables

Wide open spaces....

Admiring the lake and some dragonflies.

Mmmm Watermelon

YAY! The ice cream truck! My kids were so excited to encounter this :)


Enjoying nature, sitting under a tree.

There was a show to showcase the ISCJ Dojo

Did I say the bubbles were for the kids?

Safiyah getting a henna design on her hand.

Isn't it pretty?

There was tug of war and it was a lot of fun!
All in all a great day. I'm glad the kids had fun and got to enjoy a true American experience, Alhamdulillah.
